Convertible top truck lid problem and solution
Ok I have posted on a couple of other threads but thought this problem and solution was unique and needed a thread of its own to maybe help another G6 convertible owner. I bought a 2008 G6 GT convertible is only 15,000 original miles, one owner who was actually a little old lady whose decrease husband bought her the car. She disliked it because it was a convertible so the top was rarely used and it sat in their climate controlled garage after he died. This is why I bought it and last week the top missed up for the first time. It would go up or down fine the the trunk lid would not go all the way into position to secure the top either way. The local chevy dealer who bought out the old Pontiac dealer couldn't get to it for 2 weeks and I am headed to Florida next week, plus I was worried with parts getting hard to get the car was ruined. Well took it to local trim shop and found out they had done the work for the Pontiac dealer back in the day and had DVD from Pontiac the dealer got for them. They told me nothing wrong or broken that they could find and that the trunk was off somehow. I don't know how this happened since I am very careful and never have anything in the trunk and car has never been wrecked. They aligned the trunk on both sides however the passenger side still hangs sometimes when taking down and putting back up but if I stop and get out and gently with min effort push and pull that side it works perfectly. The shop suggested I just do this and leave it alone since nothing is broken or bend that they can see. I would like everyone's thoughts on this. Also I am considering buying up some spare parts for the top while I can still find them since this car is like brand new. The guy at shop didn't think this was necessary or a good idea, but I would like everyone's input again. Also what parts seem to go bad the most often and are the hardest to find and should I try to buy if I do this, thanks everyone for your input.
